A Note of Thanks…
As far as we know, technology has not advanced to the point that websites can put themselves together, and this one is no exception. I wish to thank David, Michelle K., Kelly L. and my family for their help and support during the months it took to put this together, and for their continued patience due to the significant demands of website upkeep. Thanks are also in order to the members of BBB Autism’s Online Support Network, the members there are fantastic, and they continue to provide many of the great links for us.
Very special thanks go to Jennifer, who has made great contributions and was instrumental in setting up!
Most of all, I wish to thank my beautiful son! I could never repay him for the wonderful gifts they have given to me and this site is dedicated to him. I love you!
